Making charcoal in Nan


A lady working at a charcoal "factory" near our village. It is a dirty and unhealthy job and luckily for us it is done a bit out of the village where we are living. The wood is placed in a old fashioned closed mud kiln where it is left about 12 days to smoulder (controlled burning). At this "factory" are 2 mud kiln's and 4 people working. They use only wood from trees. Not from construction. The kiln's are made by themselves and can be used for about 6 years. For more information about the beautiful Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand.
